THE LIST: Class of 2014 Rivals150
For his senior season, five-star shooting guard Rashad Vaughn has left his home in Minneapolis to play at mighty Henderson (Nev.) Findlay Prep. Now, there's been some movement on this recruitment.
The No. 7 player in the country has now set his first two official visits and his parents will be hosting three schools for in-home visits back in Minnesota this week.
Findlay Prep assistant coach Pete Kaffey confirmed the news.
"Rashad has set up two officials for the weekend of September 27th to North Carolina and October 18th to Baylor," Kaffey told Rivals.com. "Baylor is in Minnesota doing an in home visit today. Kansas will be there on Wednesday and North Carolina is going there on Saturday the 14th."
Scott Drew and the Bears will be pulling serious Vaughn duty on Monday. After meeting with Vaughn's family the staff will fly out to Vegas to watch Vaughn work out on the first day of the evaluation period. They won't be alone.
Iowa State's Fred Hoiberg is coming with a pair of assistants on Monday and UNLV and Minnesota will both be on hand as well.
According to Kaffey, the explosive wing is adjusting well to his new surroundings at Findlay.
"I think he's adjusting very well," said Kaffey. "The conditioning and morning workouts that we are doing are good. Basketball wise he is adjusting and he's learning that he has to bring it every day because we have great players here."
In late July Vaughn cut his list to 11. In addition to Baylor, Iowa State, Kansas, Minnesota, North Carolina and Minnesota he is considering Arizona, Connecticut, Georgetown, Kentucky and UCLA. That list should be shrinking soon, though, as Kaffey indicated that Vaughn should be tweeting a new list of eight within the next few days.
Over the next few weeks, Vaughn will consider how to best use his three remaining official visits and his plan is still to sign during the spring.
"I know his dad and Rashad have been talking more about schools that want Rashad and not just need him to fill a certain spot," said Kaffey. "I think he is going to sit down and think about schools that best fit his game and not the the name of the school. I think moving forward he's going to worry about schools that are best for him. That's the formula now.
"He's going to focus on who can get him to the next level and what that level can be and figure out who he has the best relationship with."
**Update**- Since Coach Kaffey's interview with Rivals.com, Vaughn has set another official visit. The five-star will also visit Iowa State the weekend of November 17th.
